How does the viewing list map to the launch locations ie Centennial, 1st, 2nd, boat ramp???

Michael wrote:The Home location is near the boat launch, the camera is about 10 houses north of 1a Ave, you can see the boarder marker on the right out in the ocean. Then North 1,2,3, and 4 pan up the beach with 4 being the closest to the Centennial Beach launch.

Description of the views added to the BB webcam link on the Boundary Bay - Sailing Site Info page.

Thanks for the info!

Well, my hope is based on the attached windguru + iwindsurf forecast. I have bigger gear as well so a light wind session would also be called successful.

I agree - to my eye, Locust looks promising today. Presently 23g26. Low tide doesn't make for favourable windsurf conditions and still a walk for kiters. It's not luring me out today but at the moment is where the wind is 'locally."

Locust 7:30-10:00 was fantastic. Lit on my 12m with warm water and about 7 others when I left.
